Overview

Who ever would have thought a mean and selfish troll could learn to love a baby duck?

Troll doesn't care for being nice. All he wants is to be left alone to count his precious pennies. But while out walking, Troll meets a newly-hatched duck who thinks Troll is his mother and follows him home. "Quack quack quack. Quackadack quack," says the baby duck. Taking pity, Troll eventually agrees to give him a home.

One evening Troll slips out to steal some more pennies and Quackadack Duck follows behind. The young duck is quickly snatched and locked up by an opportunistic store owner. Troll tries to free his friend from the cage, but the only way is to buy him back. Not keen to part with his pennies, Troll returns home alone.

After a troubled night Troll resolves to spend his money and liberate his friend. But the cage is empty -- Quackadack is gone! In a state of despair, his heartstrings tugged, Troll donates his pennies to a little girl wishing to free another duck from the store. On returning to his hole, who should Troll meet but Quackadack Duck! His friend learned the art of escape by watching Troll.

In this comical and heart-rending tale Allen Morgan creates characters that children identify with and scenes they find hilarious.

If you are looking for stories to illustrate self-esteem and friendship, this story would aptly fill the need. Highly Recommended.

Children's Literature
Trolls have been notorious for being big and scary. However, the troll in this story wasn't big or scary, but he had his own eccentricities. The only thing in the world he liked were pennies. He found them or stole them and sat around at night and counted them. One day, the troll happened upon a duck's nest just as the last egg burst open and a duck popped out. The troll was the first thing the duck saw and therefore thought the troll was his mother. The troll could not get rid of the duck and finally decided to keep him. The troll named the duck Quackadack Duck. One night the troll sneaked away from his home and Quackadack followed him. Quackadack was caught by the poultry store man and put into a cage. He made a lot of noise that drew the attention of the troll. The troll tried to get him out of the cage, but the poultry man told him he had to purchase the duck. The troll was heartbroken because he loved the little duck, but he also loved his pennies. He decided he liked Qucackadack more than his pennies and went off to the store to purchase him. However, when he got to the store Quackadack was gone. The troll started to cry and soon realized that a little girl next to him was crying, too. She wanted to take a duck home, but didn't have enough money. The troll knew how the girl felt so he bought a duck for her. When the troll returned home he found Quackadack Duck waiting. This story has a good moral for children about what is really important in life. The illustrations are expressive and encourage the readers to feel the emotions of the characters. 2003, Annick Press Limited, Ages 5 to 7.
